I posted something a few days ago on friends regarding printing still being done in NYC. I have some new info and am putting it under scandals because it doesn't move so fast.
I have family members that just returned from a trip to NYC. They did the tours in Brooklyn, Walkill and Patterson. I asked about what was going on in Brooklyn. I was told that there is no printing whatsoever there anymore, everything moved to Walkill. 1500 were sent home. The buildings are standing mostly empty, with some small stuff going on, like an upholstery shop. I was also told that the new press in Walkill takes many less to run it. I was told only 2 people but I find that hard to believe so I am going to get more details on that. And they now buy their ink, no longer making it.
I was also told there is no more farm activites, except for meat. They now buy all the food (except meat) that they use.
I am going to ask about the new high rise they are planning in Brooklyn with housing for 1000. Seems a little wierd that they would be building that considering what I was told. I'll post it when I find out.
